The day trip to Ouarzazate and the neighbouring kasbahs appeals but you would rather go more slowly, take more time, explore deeper, chat to local people. This trip allows all that and includes two oases, one home to many, some crumbling kasbahs at the head of the Valley of a Thousand Kasbahs and one tucked away in the hills near Ouarzazate, sheltering a traditional Berber village. There is an opportunity to visit the Atlas film studios and / or look for coloured stones in the Amethyst Valley.
